Works like advertised!
By Jerome Lebanner
Does the job for light duty applications (like light duty handycraft work, photo albums etc). Easy to remove after application.
While it holds photos on paper pages in an album, it doesn't stick to walls! So if you want to put some posters on your wall this is not the right product for you - use heavy duty tape or poster/picture strips instead .

Tape performs well; packaging could be better
By Reviewer Dr. Beth
I like having double-sided tape on hand for a variety of uses; I find it handy for craft projects or any time you simply just don't want the adhesive to show (and don't want to use glue). This tape performs quite well, as it tears easily and adheres securely.
My problem with the product pertained mainly to the first use. The cardboard backing that is attached to the tape roll makes it very difficult to rotate the roll, but I found removing the backing to be near-impossible, as little bits stuck to the roll. Getting the tape started was also a challenge, as you are required to unwind several layers--and thus waste quite a bit of the product--before getting to the double-sided portion. This just seemed like an unnecessary frustration before I even had the opportunity to try the product.
So, overall, although the packaging could be made more user-friendly, the adhesive itself works well, and I would recommend it.

This product is not meant to hold up posters on a painted wall, stars on a ceiling, etc.
It is chiefly used to apply paper on paper as in making greeting cards and it also works great to wrap a beautiful package.
Don't give things a bad review if you don't know how to use them properly. I've been using Scotch double-stick tape for over 15 years and I love it!
